Key note: “Two down at half-time, Watford fought back last night and slammed in three second-half goals to maintain their unbeaten floodlit match record this season. Star performer was Blackburn Rovers full-back Tommy Roberts. Guesting for Watford, Roberts combined fine positional play with good distribution. He crowned his display by clearing a shot off the line.” (Daily Mirror: December 1, 1954).
